Bye Bye Bristol

CASUALTY bids a sad farewell to Bristol following Cardiff relocation.

 

CASUALTY bid a sad farewell to Bristol today following over two decades filming in a warehouse in St Phillips.

 

The move comes as the show relocates to Roath Lock Studios located in the newly-named Porth Teigr area of Cardiff Bay – BBC Wales’ new drama production village which also holds Doctor Who, The Sarah Jane Adventures, Pobol Y Cwm and Upstairs Downstairs.

 

Whilst Holby is a fictional city, CASUALTY began in 1986 with hospital interiors being filmed in Television Centre in London with the outside shots Bristol-based. After the first series, all filming moved to Bristol where a warehouse on a trading estate CASUALTY made it’s home for the next 25 years.

 

Rumours began circulating about the move in 2008 and a campaign against the relocation – headed by original cast member Derek Thompson – failed to stop the plan.  The loss of CASUALTY to Bristol could cost the city £25 million according to reports. Fans now hope, with some trepidation, that the move will bring more positives to the long running show.
